It’s been announced that David Byrne will have a new installation opening in New York this summer. If you’re in the area you should try to check it out. He will essentially morph a building into a musical instrument.
How? Well, it sounds as though attachments throughout the structure will incorporate tones and vibrations. This isn’t the first time he’s created this type of installation. His site shows a similar project in Sweden, Fall 2005. He also posts some recordings of that particular venture.
Find out more (including a map to the The Battery Maritime Building) – the installation opens May 31st and goes through August 10, 2008.
